Main Question or Discussion Point


What do you think?

Why would he think microwaved food would be dangerous? He doesn't really explain why...Most of the time that I heard microwaved food was dangerous was from crackpots that also thinks we will all get fried by 5g wifi... this is a teacher though kind of concerning

I think he is a crackpot. He's offering an opinion with no basis in fact.

It happens too often that some people has just one or two wild beliefs, while in other areas they still can act/think reasonably.
Quite troublesome since in such cases the 'normal' part gives credit to the 'crackpot' part.
Especially troublesome when it's not across different sciences (like some physicist giving health advice or a chemist running against general relativity), but within one scientific area.
I don't know any real solution for this.

Haven't found any evidence that shows microwaving food is detrimental. Obviously, don't stand in front of a microwave if it's open, but most microwaves won't even operate with open door.

A bit concerning since it's coming from a teacher :frown:

As you should know, we don't debunk pseudoscience here at the PF. Thread will remain closed.
